I'm 64yo. (Can that be possible?). When I was 5yo, my great-uncle 
played me some 78s of Caruso, Supervia and Chaliapin, He's actually 
heard Caruso live back in 1908 or so. Anyhow, by the time I was 6yo, 
i was getting up early every Saturday morning and rushing up and down 
Portobello Road, (where we moved when I was 14yo and I still live 
here), trying to get to the operatic 78rpm bargains before the other 

You know, there's still ONE stall here in the market that still sells 
78s and gramophones and phonographs every Saturday.
